Description

Proboscis is a nice moderate and a great way to reach the top of the Dragon's Back.

Pitch 1 - 5.7
Start on the southwest side of dragon back and follow easy cracks up a dihedral to the ridge line and a ledge with large tree.

Pitch 2 - 5.8
Climb up blocks and then follow a nice hand crack up the ridge. Belay at the base of a 15 ft wall with a flaring crack.

Pitch 3 - 5.8+
Climb the flaring crack up the wall and then continue to follow the ridge line to the very top.

To descend there are bolts to rappel from at the top of Owl Dihedral. Don't miss the 2nd set of bolts in the middle of the face between pitches 1 and 2 of Owl Dihedral if you only have a single 60m rope.

Location

Follow the trail down the hill to the creek. Hop across the creek and scramble up gullies and ledges. You are looking for a nice dihedral on the right end of the main wall.

Protection

Gear to 3 inches. No bolted belays.
